Graphic Novel Review: Wonder Woman, Volume 1: The Lies by Greg Rucka

I liked this book even though it wasn’t meant for me. Wonder Woman is coming back with a vengeance as a symbol of female empowerment, as she was always meant to be.

Graphic Novel Review: Teen Titans Vol. 1: Damian Knows Best by Benjamin Percy

I felt this story is a cliché, the Teen Titans accept Damian as some sort of leader, while teaching him a few social graces, while making him realize that he doesn’t need to be a jerk all the time.

Graphic Novel Review: Super Sons Vol. 2: Planet of the Capes (Rebirth) by Peter J. Tomasi

The story in this graphic novel takes on too much, some stories are simply loosely tied together and are overly complex for what it is. I enjoyed the relationship between Jon and Damian but I think a less bombastic mission/adventure would have played better.

Book Review: A Castle in Romagna by Igor Štiks

The subject matter is serious and dark. Emotional leaders making bad decisions, abusing their authority.

Book Review: House of Rougeaux by Jenny Jaeckel

A good story but not one that gets a hold of you and doesn’t let go

Graphic Novel Review: Harley Quinn Vol. 2: Power Outage (The New 52) by Amanda Conner and‎ Jimmy Palmiotti

I enjoyed the stories were the fourth wall is being broken and Harley is out in the real world, my favorite was the story where she goes to Comic-Con, it was very funny and I’m sure there were many gags I didn’t even get (bonus points for including Bruce Timm and Paul Dini).
